technology partners, our communications partners, our department leaders, new ones as well as old ones, are saying this is just the beginning. this is literally the beginning of a continued effort to innovate, innovate, and innovate. and i like what mark said. not only are there no strings attached. really the benefits are targeted at our residents and our visitors, but that the only thing we're going to see is wireless connected to our fiber. we're learning that. we're learning that our fine and some of the backbones that we've always had to depend on can be improved on. i have to admit, the new director will also tell you we are behind. i call our self-the innovation capital of the world, but we're behind in many ways and we need to catch up. we need to do more, but sometimes the funding wasn't there and it costs more than we think and we're trying to figure things out and trying to get as modern as fast as we can. and this is where i think that relationship with the private sector, particularly with our technology and innovative companies in san francisco is so important to us, that

to new technology. that means huge amounts of money will flow into very poor countries. in fact, all 12 of these african nations are projected to the major oil fires -- players, currently in the bottom half of the u.n.'s human development index. these new exports could inject $3 trillion into their economies. they had a combined gdp in 2011 of just $181 billion. what effect might then have? history tells us it could mean bad news for the people of those countries. that is because when countries suddenly discover a viable resource and receive an influx of cash, they succumb to what is known as the resource curse, wealth inequality surging, corruption running rampant, and democratic institutions and quality of life breaking down. perhaps it is worth noting that of all the developing nations that are now receiving a majority of their earnings from oil and gas, not a single one has a functioning democracy. why does this happen? to answer that question, i was joined earlier by an adjunct professor at georgetown university and the founder of the democracy and conflict research institute. i st
